Applied Statics and Strength of Materials provides students with the foundation for successful completion of engineering and construction technology programs. The text is written at a fundamental level for students detailing equilibrium, trusses, frames, centroids and moment of inertia and their relation to the concepts of vectors and equilibrium. All topics within the subjects of material of stress and strain, strength of materials, beam, column and connection design are integrated within the text. The latest guidelines for steel, concrete and timber are used in covering design. Similarly, a detailed aCourse Projecta continues throughout the book and allows the student to apply principles throughout the text to the solution of a real-world design problem
